I bought this dress in navy as a maid of honor dress 4 years ago and just wore it for the 2nd time last weekend. Felt compelled to write a review to recommend. First off, the material is sort of like a scuba material but in the very best way. It's super comfortable, has "give" to it as well as holds things in somehow. It's very flattering with the rouching by the belly. I also have a larger chest and you can somewhat adjust/fiddle with that part of the dress to make it more or less revealing. I did have it shortened a bit (I'm 5'6" and wanted it above the knee) and, yes, there is no actual hem, but the seamstress made it work. I also received so many compliments on the dress at BOTH events. This is a keeper (obviously, 4 years later)! For reference, I typically wear a 10/12 and went with the 12 for a little extra room.
